Question # 1
How can validate input values in selection screen and which event was fired?

View All Answers

Question # 2
A table is buffered. I want to get the data from database. How?

io

st

Answer:We can Validate Selection Screen With the Help of the Following Events, the Event Follows the Same hierachy. AT SELECTION-SCREEN ON AT
SELECTION-SCREEN ON BLOCK AT SELECTION-SCREEN OUTPUT AT SELECTION-SCREEN.

ns

Answer:If buffering is allowed for a table in the ABAP Dictionary, the SELECT statement always reads the data from the buffer in the database interface of the current
application server. To read data directly from the database table instead of from the buffer, use the following: SELECT... FROM *lt;tables> BYPASSING BUFFER.
.. This addition guarantees that the data you read is the most up to date. However, as a rule, only data that does not change frequently should be buffered, and using
the buffer where appropriate improves performance. You should therefore only use this option where really necessary.

In

Select Single * from and select Upto 1 rows At new - on change of difference: In case if you want calculate sub totals for same values in a field you can use the atnew
statement.ie: For example in a table sflight, there are 2 fields carrid ( airline id) and seatsmax( seat available). In case if you want calculate the total number of seats
available for each carrrid you can sort the table first and using the at new and sum you can claculate the total seats for each carrid. Atnew will be triggered whenever
there is a change in the carrid and the total seats will be returned for each carrid. In the same scenario if you use onchange of it will not return the total seats for each
carrid, instead it will return the total seat count for the entire table( ie: for all the carrids in the table. Another diffrence is atnew can be used only between loop and
end loop whereas on change of can also be used in select- endselect , do -enddo. Another diffrence is while using atnew in case if you code any write statements
between atnew and end at the value for the numeric fields will be returned as 0 and that of no numeric fields will be returned as *(asteriks). But in on change of the
orginal values will be returned. Select single * and select upto 1 row diffrence. The select single * from stmt selects only one row form the database table and puts it
in to the work area(internal table). The select upto n(where n stands for a integer number) rows stmt selects all the rows from the database table but writes only the
specified number of rows specified by the n into the internal table. If its given as upto 1 rows only 1 row is written in to the internal table.

Question # 8
Exit and Stop. What is the difference?

io

st

Answer:User exits and customer exits are the same thing. Both are used to give the customer the chance to influence the outcome of a process(-step) in some way, without
having to change the standard SAP software. For example: if an order is entered in the system, availability checks, credit checks etc. could be performed by the
system but just before writing the order to the database, the program runs a user exit. In this user exit, your code could change some fields in the order or write an
entry in a table that you created for some reason.

Answer:exit statments is exit the current loop. and moving to next loop but stop statement move to end of selection. it's not check all other loops.

Question # 20
What are function modules in LDB?

Answer:Cluster tables contain continuous text, for example, documentation. Several cluster tables can be combined to form a table cluster. Several logical lines of different
tables are combined to form a physical record in this table type. This permits object-by-object storage or object-by-object access. In order to combine tables in
clusters, at least parts of the keys must agree. Several cluster tables are stored in one corresponding table on the database.

What are the SET Parameter and GET Parameter?
Answer:To use parameter IDs, you need to set" (store) values in the global memory area and then get" (retrieve) values from this parameter ID memory area. IIn
the case of an online program, you will set" values from screen fields and you will get" these values for screen fields. YYou can perform this set/get"
function two ways: Use the ABAP statements SET PARAMETER ID" and GET PARAMETER ID". Use the field attributes SPA" and GPA"
. RRemember that parameter IDs can only be used with ABAP Dictionary fields because parameter IDs are linked to data elements. The appropriate data elements
must have a parameter IDs for this set/get" function to work.

Question # 27
Distinguish between setscreen and call screen?

ns
A

Answer:SAP memory is a memory area to which all main sessions within a SAPgui have access. You can use SAP memory either to pass data from one program to another
within a session, or to pass data from one session to another. Application programs that use SAP memory must do so using SPA/GPA parameters . ABAP memory is
a memory area that all ABAP programs within the same internal session can access using the EXPORT and IMPORT statements. Data within this area remains intact
during a whole sequence of program calls. To pass data to a program which you are calling, the data needs to be placed in ABAP memory before the call is made. The
internal session of the called program then replaces that of the calling program. The program called can then read from the ABAP memory.

Question # 33
What is Refresh in Internal Table?

st

ue

Answer:COLLECT allows you to create unique or summarized datasets. The system first tries to find a table entry corresponding to the table key. The key values are taken
either from the header line of the internal table itab, or from the explicitly-specified work area. If the system finds an entry, the numeric fields that are not part of the
table key (see ABAP number types) are added to the sum total of the existing entries. If it does not find an entry, the system creates a new entry instead. The way in
which the system finds the entries depends on the type of the internal table: - STANDARD TABLE: The system creates a temporary hash administration for the table
to find the entries. This means that the runtime required to find them does not depend on the number of table entries. The administration is temporary, since it is
invalidated by operations like DELETE, INSERT, MODIFY, SORT, ...). A subsequent COLLECT is then no longer independent of the table size, because the system
has to use a linear search to find entries. For this reason, you should only use COLLECT to fill standard tables. - SORTED TABLE: The system uses a binary search
to find the entries. There is a logarithmic relationship between the number of table entries and the search time.

Question # 35
Explain Check Table and Value Table?

er
w

Answer:- STANDARD TABLE: The key is, by default, set to NON-UNIQUE. You may not use the UNIQUE addition. - SORTED TABLE: Unlike stadard tables, sorted
table have no default setting for the uniqueness attribute. If you do not specify either UNIQUE or NON-UNIQUE, the system defines a generic table type, where
uniqueness is irrelevant. You can use generic types to specify the type of generic subroutine parameters. - HASHED TABLE: Hashed tables have no default setting.
You must use the UNIQUE addition with hashed tables. You may not use NON-UNIQUE.

Question # 54
Types of User Exits, what kind of work is done on these exits?

s.

Answer:CMOD : This transaction allows you to create a PROJECT by identifying its ENHANCEMENT(S). After determining all of the ENHANCEMENTS that are part of
the PROJECT, you will have to activate the PROJECT. You will still need to code your user-exit; therefore, you may want to wait until this step is completed before
activating the PROJECT. SMOD : This transaction allows you to create an ENHANCEMENT, which you will include in a PROJECT, by identifying its
COMPONENT(S). In the case where SAP has already created an ENHANCEMENT for its pre-defined user-exits, you will not need to use transaction SMOD;
instead, you should just use transaction CMOD.
